Reviving Old Proverbs

April 19th, 2011

Old sayings and figures of speech get a second wind, with the help of 4th graders.

The grass is always greener when...

you leave the sprinkler on.

A rolling stone...

plays the guitar.

The grass is always greener...

when you remember to water it.

A bird in the hand is...

a real mess.

No news is...

no newspaper.

It's better to light one candle than...

to waste electricity.

It's always darkest just before...

I open my eyes.

You have nothing to fear but...

homework.

If you can't stand the heat...

don't start the fireplace.

If you can't stand the heat...

go swimming.

Never put off 'til tomorrow...

what you should have done yesterday.

A penny saved is...

nothing in the real world.

The squeaking wheel gets...

annoying.

We have nothing to fear but...

our principal.

To err is human...

To eat a muskrat is not.

I think, therefore I...

get a headache.

Laugh and the world laughs with you. Cry, and...

someone yells, "Shut up!"

Better to light a candle than to...

light an explosive.

It's always darkest before...

9:30 p.m.

Early to bed and early to rise...

is first in the bathroom.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a...

blister.

There is nothing new under the...

bed.

The grass is always greener...

when you put manure on it.

Don't count your chickens...

it takes too long.
